    carb blocking


    is there a supplement on the market which blocks cravings for carbs and or sugars. i have an extremely hard time stopping myself for reaching for the cheese bread or snickers bar. i work for a grocery store and am constantly surrounded by it. any ideas?

    structuring your diet goes along way in controlling blood glucose levels.

    Yes. I use this thing called "discipline" to block sugar. Works awesome.

    There aren't shortcuts, get your diet right.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    Even if there was a decent sup you would want to take that the rest of your life to stop craving.

    Discipline and a healthy diet will form a good habit....soon enough you will chose a banana/turkey breast etc over a chocolate bar.

    Discipline your self and you won't need to cheat yourself!

    Spend it on 6 bottom round steaks, 6 packets of Easy Sides basmati rice, a couple gallons of Crystal Light, and 1 small tub of Cool Whip if you get a monster craving.

    Look, in the trash can...it's diet regret! All gone, bro.

    Op, i like you would killer for a carb blocker. I wish there was a pill we could take that would turn our intestines off from absorbing whatever we eat for like a 1 hour period haha. I wouldnt even care if i had to sit on the toilet while eating cause it passes right through! I just love to eat! But we are **** outa luck on this one

    An appetite suppressant would be your only real option.

    Well, it's not an intestinal carb-blocker, but SGLT2 inhibitors have been a subject of some excitement in the field of diabetic research...

    Canaglifozin was recent approved conditionally for use in the U.S. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canagliflozin

    It blocks the renal re-absorption of glucose, so you literally pee out a portion of excess carbs.
